1970s Backless Cotton Striped Halter Top Maxi Sun Dress

There is just a certain cut and line of a seventies halter that once you find you look for variations of it endlessly. This is that dress. It is super chic and one of those easy to wear pieces that you can just throw into a suitcase and it works for day or night, and at the beach, the country, or the city, and you always feel like a million bucks in it. It is made out of a wash and wear cotton and that stripe gives it a fabulous feel. It's got a element of sexiness to it with that low bare back but still feels sweet at the same time. The front has a halter/bikini cut and ties around the back of the neck. This leaves the back virtually bare with the front is cut low and deep so you get a sexy expanse of skin. The skirt cascades to the floor in a widening sweep of fabric and I love how the stripes are set on an angle on the skirt. Excellent condition.

Unlined and ties to close at the back neck and zippers at the low back waist.
